Dialectical Therapy Book for Anxiety and Depression

There is a very readable and helpful workbook called "Depressed and Anxious, The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Workbook for Overcoming Depression and Anxiety" by Thomas Marra. You can go to Alibris, a used and new book site to find it maybe for less than full price. A lot of DBT books seemed complicated to me, and written as much for therapists as their clients. This is a client centered book, but also can be brought to ...

Has anyone read Jung & Freud?

Did it help and are there studies and teachings worth looking into? I don't want to spend a whole lot of energy into something as far back as the 19/20th century, I mean as clever as they were, I just can't see half of it being relevant in todays society.

One thing I know is I don't want to waste time on something that simply won't help in the end, theres too many "read this ...

Bipolar For Beginners: for those just diagnosed and families

I have been diagnosed with Bipolar II disorder in October 2011. When the psychiatrist announced the news, he didn't give me any additional information. “Have you got any questions?” he asked, but I didn't know what to ask, so I said nothing. I was previously diagnosed with depression in 2004, and lived with that diagnosis for seven years. Bipolar II was something completely new to me; I barely even heard about existence of such disorder. ...

Dark Souvenirs by Evelyn Lybelle

Dark Souvenirs (A Candid Memoir of Incest and Child Abuse in Middle Class America) by Evelyn Lybelle ISBN: 9-781495-398926

I just came across this book and was blown away by it. I've read a lot of books on child abuse where the author addresses the abuse, but this one goes beyond - not just talking about how she healed, but how she went on to heal others.

I expected this to be a tell-all on ...

self-help articles describing techniques that actually work!

This website is about learning how to fight your problems. Coming from a background as somebody who has manic depression, borderline personality disorder and a.d.d, I’ve spent years battling my mental illness.

The Law of the Garbage Truck

The Law of the Garbage Truck by David J. Pollay

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.

We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!

The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started ...

"The Conquest of Happiness" - B. Russell

Hi. This is my first post (other than the obligatory introduction to make sure you are not a robot/spammer) and I thought that sharing knowledge of Bertrand Russell's insightful book "The Conquest of Happiness" would be a good place to start.

Written between the World Wars, this book may not appeal to our society on the surface. But keep in mind that Bertrand Russell was one of the most intelligent people who ever lived. As ...

Wonderful Book for ED help

The book I am reading right now is 8 Keys to Recovering from and Eating Disorder by: Karolyn Costin and Gwen Schubert Grabb. It has been a great help to me, someone who is diagnosed with bulimia.
